The building firm are offering regional project prizes of £500 to £10,000 and the top regional project will receive £50,000. You can nominate any community building that is making a difference in your community and needs building support eg: a new roof or other renovation works. You can also nominate your Trade Hero who could win £50,000 to help them complete a community project.

Cinnamon Network Project Lab 2017
Project Lab 2017 is looking for church-based social action projects with a youth focus.
Specifically they are looking for social action projects that: – could be adopted and run by an average sized church – are simple and replicable – are bold and want to grow – have a track record in their local community – are well led and want to inspire other churches – have a vision to grow nationally – have some resources to continue their current work – respond to social needs in the community.
Applications are welcome from a local church or a group of churches working in partnership. Your application will be entered into a competition – the lucky winners will receive financial support for their projects.
You can read about the 2016 competition here http://www.cinnamonnetwork.co.uk/cinnamon-project-lab-2016/
Grants are available for not-for-profit organisations in the UK to cover some of the costs of developing and co-ordinating a building project and taking it towards the start of work on site.
Church Buildings are eligible, however they must be able to prove that the building is being adapted for new uses. If your project is encouraging a range of uses this may be worth looking at.

The Churches Trust for Cumbria, Carlisle Diocese and Atlantic Geomatics are working closely to develop a system to help manage your churchyard and maintain your burial records. It provides a detailed and accurate on-screen churchyard map showing the location of each grave and memorial, the footprint of the church building and details such as trees, other flora and fauna, paths, buildings, benches and signs.
We would like the diocese to be the first in the country to have all its churchyards mapped.
If you want further information please contact Atlantic Geomatics on 01768 83310 or email email@example.com
